Learning jQuery, the Book
For those of you who have been following the jQuery blog the past couple months, you may have noticed John Resig's mention of a secret: "There's a jQuery book in the works!" Well, I am thrilled to be able to leak a little more information about that secret.
For the past few months my friend Jonathan Chaffer and I have been hard at work on the book, and everything is progressing well. Our writing is being supported by a stellar group of technical reviewers, some of whom are members of the jQuery development team. We'll be able to divulge details about the book's contents soon. The publisher is readying a web page for it, so as soon as that is completed, we can give you the full scoop.
About the Authors
Jonathan Chaffer is a long-time Drupal contributor and creator of Drupal's CCK. He also likes to make up bizarre band names and album titles, based on snippets of conversations he overhears, at Tweak the Viking. Karl Swedberg (that's me) is a jQuery zealot who runs the Learning jQuery blog and still tries to keep a bit of his former career as an English teacher alive at his other blog, English Rules. Jonathan and Karl work
together at Structure Interactive in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they have been given a lot of freedom to use jQuery, as well as standards-based, semantic HTML & CSS, in many of their projects.
